in the death of hadiya pendleton. >> do we know what kind of evidence police allegedly have against these two in. >> they don't have the murder weapon, which, of course, is a problem at trial, potentially, but they do apparently have witnesses. those witnesses, they had to go out and get. earlier today, one of the issues with filing charges in the case, according to superintendent gary mccarthy, was to kwinlsz the witnesses to come forward and go through with this, go to trial, get on the witness stand. it's a huge problem with the chicago violence issue. nobody wants to come forward because they fear for their life. chicago police say they have been able to get these witnesses to agree to go to trial and tell them what they know. and that is why they have been able to file charges tonight. >> you know, we have reported a lot on this whole sort of stop snitching movement and we have seen this around the country, but what a huge problem it is for police forces, and certainly in chicago we have reported on that a lot. when you say they went out and found these witnesses, do we know any more det
, talking about the parents of hadiya pendleton and talking about the people of nourn. and now we're seeing the president make this plea in chicago. i guess realistically speaking from a political standpoint, how much do events like this accomplish? does it help him make this point? >> as we've seen, and you've watched it up close, the president's strategy is to go directly to the american people. you can't go to the city of chicago, even though you want to talk about opportunities, social programs, mental health services, increase in the minimum wage and all of the rest, you can't go to a place like chicago and not talk about gun violence. so what he's trying to do, i think, is say, look, this is not a rural issue versus an urban issue. this is an american issue. it's just one more way that -- he understands what the political odds are in congress for a ban on assault weapons. he gets that. but this is just one way for him to make the case to the american people to pressure members of congress and lots of them, by the way, as you know are democrats who are in districts where it might not b
